How to Make Easy Oreo Truffles for Your Valentine

Chocolate candy is the gift of choice for many on Valentine’s Day, but this elaborate French candy is far from easy on the wallet. If, on Valentine’s Day, you are looking to have your cake and eat it too, try whipping up a batch of homemade truffles for your special someone. Truffles are extremely versatile, and can be tailored to suit any taste preferences – one of the many delicious varieties are melt-in-your-mouth Oreo truffles. Unbelievably yummy, and made with just three ingredients, Oreo truffles are bound to prove a big hit with everyone.

Preparation Time: 45 minutes – 1 hour
Serving Size: Makes about 2 dozen truffles

Ingredients:

– 1 pack of Oreos
– 1 package of cream cheese
– 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate (or white chocolate, whichever kind you prefer)

Instructions

    Start by crushing your Oreos into powder. You can use a food processor to obliterate the cookies until they reach a fine, crumbly consistency, or simply toss them all in a ziplock bag, and use a rolling pin to beat them into sweet submission. Either way, ensure that your Oreo cookies are reduced to crumbs.

    Next, put your cream cheese in a medium-sized bowl, and use a mixer to blend the cheese until it becomes smooth and creamy. Once this is done, add in the crushed Oreos, and mix for a couple of seconds, until both ingredients are perfectly combined.

    Now, line a cookie tray with waxed paper or parchment paper. Then, use a small cookie scoop (or two spoons), and scoop up little balls of this mixture. Line these balls up on the cookie tray, and make sure they are all equal in size. Once this is done, re-roll all the balls with your hands, to make sure their surfaces become smooth. Slide the tray into the refrigerator for around 20 to 30 minutes to cool.

    While the Oreo balls are chilling and hardening in the refrigerator, melt your chocolate using a double boiler. Once it is melted and the Oreo balls have hardened, take them out of the fridge, and dip them into the melted chocolate one by one, using a fork and spoon for dipping them in, taking them out, draining off extra chocolate, and lining them up on the cookie tray again.

    Your Oreo truffles are now ready, and need to go into the refrigerator for another 20 minutes to cool and harden completely. You can also decorate them as per preferences – drizzle them with more chocolate, pop on some sprinkles or chopped nuts, or decorate each with a tiny red candy heart.
